Flavours of sweet cherries, raisins and marzipan. The mouthfeel is velvety and rich with that extra finish you can only find in a great lot from this particular region.

About The Farm

Huye Mountain, Rwanda. The land of 1000 hills is blessed with ideal growing conditions for coffee: High altitude, regular Rainfall and rich soil. We have been roasting coffee from David Rubanzangabos since 2013.

David is a key figure in the development of Specialty Coffee in Rwanda, having won Cup of Excellence many times by now. When he took the Huye Mountain private, he segmented the mountain range into seven zones - each with a different flavour profile. David is a true philanthropist who cares deeply about the families he works with. He offers incentives to farmers to produce high quality coffee, working with social premiums and quality incentives. We are proud to work closely with David, and this years lots are better than ever.

The Process

Huye Mountain has its own washing stations in the Huye District, where coffees are processed and quality control takes place. During the harvest, ripe cherries are handpicked and delivered to the station for sorting and grading.

After sorting, the best quality cherries are fermented naturally and dried on raised African drying tables for circa 20 days. Season after season, the quality of processing at Huye Mountain impresses, with flawless beans packed full of clean and complex flavour.
